Happy Day..

Today is an especially happy one for me. It's my darling boy's birthday.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY dear Stanley Richard. I am being taken over to see him tomorrow for a proper celebration!

I have not given you a photo of him, instead I've chosen to show a picture of my beloved Grandmother. It's a photo manipulation and hand coloured in Photoshop with my mouse.
She was so beautiful but she never had the chance to wear silks and satins, long gloves and carry a bouquet so I've given her that chance in this collage. What do you think?

Another reason for a Happy Day....what the postman has brought. A record collection of Christmas music, songs and Carols by my favourite old crooners, Francis Albert, Bing, Dean, Perry and the like. Gorgeous!
PLUS a Christmas tree! Three feet tall, covered with tiny white LED lights. No wires for me to trip over, battery powered. Ready for me to string a few gold beads around!
My darling cousin Freddie thought I needed cheering up and this would put me in a Christmas mode! Thank you sweetheart! He's the brother I never had! how lucky am I?

I love how you have given her a proper set of clothing. My gmother was a simple woman who never wore silks either. Beautiful piece, June.

I love the way you dressed your dear grandmother! I'll bet she is just beaming at the lovely dress! And your Xmas tree sounds perfect!! I was just thinking I needed to buy an extension cord...
